On any given day I’m never sure what’ll  happen around here but today even surprised me a little. I was minding my own business and enjoying my life until I found a corpse in my driveway.  I make it a point to be aware of what goes on around my residence by checking things regularly every day. I was able to determine the time of death based on my last patrol of the property and let me tell you that corpse was fresh.

With my investigative background it took only a quick glance to determine that this death was not accidental. . . . it appeared to be murder. I could plainly see the blunt force trauma to the head and several deep puncture marks along the side of the body. It wasn’t pretty.

‘Deadly head trauma to be sure.’

I closely searched the surrounding area looking for obvious clues but found nothing.  This investigation really couldn’t be all that thorough because I no longer have access to the appropriate forensic equipment except for latex gloves and a big, old magnifying glass I found in a drawer.

In recent weeks there’ve been reports of suspicious behavior by a gang of delinquents (coyotes) roaming around the neighborhood after dark and wreaking havoc throughout the area.  It’s resulted in the loss of a number of  household pets and those guys are persons of interest.

‘He never had a prayer.’

There was no way to identify the body so we’ll just call him Mickey Doe.  He had brown hair and a large unruly mustache. I was able to get a couple of photos of the body but they added very little to the investigation. As you can see this will be a difficult case to solve and I expect it will go cold rather quickly.

‘Some serious bite marks.’

My main suspect lives across the street and is often seen skulking around looking for trouble. He had motive and opportunity because I saw him just before finding the body as he was high-tailing it home to hide under the porch.

As of this report the case remains open. I was forced to remove the body from the driveway and reverently picked it up by the tail and tossed it into the woods.  We have no refrigeration facilities here to store corpses.

Another sad and merciless loss of life here in Maine.

BE ON THE LOOK OUT FOR THIS GUY
